Organs wanted / Re: organ parts for sale

Is the Hill-Tuba still available?
We would need it to complete a Hill of 1904.
best regards!

He has a fantastic technique  - but does the music communicate?  I'm far from convinced by his excessive tempos.  His playing comes across as "listen to how brilliant my playing is" rather than "listen to the music".  I've come across other players in the same vein - and it can and does alienate some people from the organ.

I gave up on the video quite early - I'd rather listen to the music than a voice-over in a foreign language.  Maybe I missed something more encouraging later in it.

I have to agree with you.  I admit that he possesses a distinct skill, but it is not to my taste musically either.

I haven't been particularly enamoured with a certain high profile performer but

puts him into a very different light. Perhaps as he matures we'll find that respect is very much deserved.

How did I know who you meant before I opened the video?!

Happening by chance on a recent Youtube video today it's a pleasure to see Cameron Carpenter clearly maturing - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IGbVnxj8DyE

Organs in danger / Re: Free Complete Dismantled Organ

Is the Machie Acadady organ still available?  I used to live in Stonehaven - I owned the old Alexandra Hotel. At that time, there was a strange 3 manual organ in the Academy which only had one stop on each manual!!  It was not fully working.  I understand from Alan Buchan that there is an Ingram extension organ also - is this the one you have?  I am wathching the restoraion on the Ingram theatre organ in Corstorphine which I owned for yours.  However, I have a wee church which looking for a small pipe organ.  Can you help - as always - they have no money!!

Organs on eBay or for urgent sale / Re: Conacher on ebay

Thanks for correcting the location.  The ebay ad said location was Telford and the Menai Bridge instrument came up on NPOR (Telford Road) and has the same Swell stop list.

Ah!  I was thinking it might have been one of their Irish jobs and I was piqued that I didn't recognise it!
